Chaos at the border again

Once again on Monday, 5 June 2017, Haitian authorities prevented Dominican products entering Haiti causing chaos at the border.  The situation was especially frenzied as the Haitian authorities had not advised Haitian shoppers crossing into the Dominican Republic in the morning that much of the merchandise purchased in the Dominican Republic would not be allowed to enter Haitian territory.

In Dajabon, the Haitian customs and immigration authorities had allowed the flow goods from the Dominican Republic to enter Haiti on the previous Friday. Market days are Mondays and Fridays.

The products not being allowed into Haiti included live and frozen chickens, eggs, pasta, plantains, cassava, sweet potatoes, peppers, eggplant, green bananas, chayote, carrots, sausages and salami, cabbage, lettuce and flour.

Businessman Fernando Capellán urged more talks with the Haitian authorities. He said the Haitian authorities are seeking to collect taxes on the goods purchased not happening with the small merchant purchases of market days.
